Royals sign pitcher Travis Wood to two-year deal

Reports: Royals signing former Cubs pitcher Travis Wood

Jon Heyman from Today's Knuckleball at Fanrag.com indicated that the contract was a two-year, $12 million deal.

"He's a victor", general manager Dayton Moore said.

The Royals have mined the Cubs this offseason as they aim to build on their 81-81 finish a year ago and return to the World Series, which they reached the previous two years. "That's what attracted us to Travis".

His strikeout numbers did take a bit of a dip, but with the Cubs not in need of another starting pitcher, Wood opted to test the free agent market and see if he could find a team that would give him that opportunity.

Wood made 77 appearances, going 4-0 with a 2.95 ERA in 61 innings.

Wood appeared in 259 games for the Cubs over seven seasons, including 133 starts. "Wherever I fit in is what I'll do". In a corresponding roster move, pitcher Brian Flynn has been placed on the 60-day disabled list with a stable lumbar vertebral fracture.

Wood, who turned 30 last week, will be pitching in the American League for the first time after two seasons with the Reds and five with the Cubs.

He will compete for the fifth slot with a pair of right-handers: Chris Young was 1-8 with a 7.39 ERA in 13 starts last season, and Nathan Karns went 6-2 with a 4.56 ERA in 15 starts with Seattle.
